Also question is, can you dig up azaleas and replant them?

Transplanting azaleas is no different. If it's an azalea, you're in luck because azaleas have shallow roots, are easy to dig up, and recover quickly from the stress of moving. Even mature azaleas can be moved if you are careful to minimize damage to the root systems.

Furthermore, when can you move azaleas to Zone 8? The best time for transplanting azaleas is late summer or early autumn. Instead of bringing possible frost damage, winter provides safe, mild temperatures for your roots to get nice and established before the harsh heat of summer.

In this regard, what is the best time to transplant azaleas?

In cold climates early spring transplanting is recommended. In hot climates very late summer to late fall transplanting is preferred so that the root system has a chance to become established during the fall before next summers heat. Deciduous azaleas are best transplanted in their dormant season.

How do you transplant azaleas?

Dig a trench 12 inches out from the edge of the shrub, and about 12 inches deep, moving in a complete circle around the plant. This will help you cut the roots and give you leverage for removal. Push the shovel under the plant's roots toward the center of the circle, loosening the soil and creating a cone.
